Beautiful visits to do in Lower Normandy
At the turn of a trip to Saint Vaast le Hougue, a small fishing port typical of the Val de Saire, embark aboard an amphibious boat to go to the island of Tatihou. This island with its 28 hectares of natural space is part of the coastal conservatory which tends to preserve its biodiversity. Three gardens present the flora of the Normandy coast: the botanical, maritime and acclimatization gardens. A rejuvenating walk to do for lovers or couples with children or grandchildren.
Located just 3 km away from Utah Beach, our property is ideally placed for visiting the D-Day beaches. A little further east, Omaha Beach, the second American landing area, will also feature many D-Day museums and memorials.
You are now arrived on the coast of Calvados, take the opportunity to visit these beautiful seaside towns of the Côte de Nacre and Côte Fleurie such as Ouistreham, Honfleur, Deauville, Trouville and Cabourg. Inland there are also wonderful treasures to visit, especially the Castle-Museum of Saint-Germain-de-Livet near Lisieux, listed as an historic monument. This half-timbered mansion of the late 15th century, surrounded by moats, can be visited from April to November. But also the town of Bayeux, its cathedral with medieval architecture and its historic center, spared by the bombings of 1944, are incredibly well preserved.
To complete your historical knowledge of La Manche, go down to the south of the department to discover the Mont Saint Michel. This architectural treasure becomes an island during high tides: a natural spectacle not to be missed !
